Fees and Auxiliary Costs

The payment of tuition fees is a necessary burden for all parents. The College, in its fee structure, has tried to establish a balance which does not make the payment of fees beyond the reach of families, realising, however, sacrifices need to be made. It will be a financial sacrifice for many to send their child(ren) to St. Thomas Aquinas College but the reward is the sanctification of your children's souls.

The fee structure is aimed at helping large families with substantial discounts for second, third and subsequent children.
